D-Link today introduced a stylish addition to any home entertainment environment — the D-Link Pebble — a uniquely designed media player that lets users play virtually all of their media in an attractive, easy-to-use and compact device.
Lightweight, decorative and functional, no other media player of its style and price offers full network capabilities in such a compact package. Pebble streams music, photos and video wherever they are stored — on external hard drives, in USB thumb drives, SD/XM/Flash memory cards, network attached storage (NAS) devices, PCs or the Internet. An optional dongle is available for wireless 802.11n connectivity.
When attached to a home network — either wired or wireless — the D-Link Pebble accepts media files from any PC on the network or NAS device, and allows playback on the entertainment center TV and stereo with high-resolution quality and crystal clear sound. The intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) makes user navigation quick and point-click-and-play easy.
The USB 2.0 ports support an external hard drive, thumbdrives, various memory card formats and a USB wireless dongle. HDMI 1.3 and analog video output and composite audio also are built into the Pebble for the ultimate viewing and listening experience.

The D-Link Pebble will be available in the first half of 2010 through the company’s vast network of retail and etail outlets, and at D-Link’s online store, for the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) expected to be $119.99
